    “It makes the state’s numbers appear artificially high, as if they were processing things according to law,” New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty’s Sovereign Hager told KTRK. “When in fact, they aren’t.

    I thought the economy was doing so well that nobody should need food stamps anymore.

    Which one is the lie?

    No liberal spokesperson said the "economy was doing so well that nobody should need food stamps anymore?" THAT was the question you asked in post #2.
    You said nothing about food stamps increasing until just now.
    How many times to you intend to change your question?

    Neither did you..show us where the OP claims or even brings up a supposed rise in people getting or needing foodstamps?..that is a claim you just made up and blurted out rather ignorantly.
